about creative groove

Supporting purpose-driven professionals in achieving their goals.

“Seeing clients inspired by their new brand identities and motivated to reach their goals faster makes my work very rewarding.” 

Brenda Hanna, Owner & Creative Director

I enjoy guiding business owners who, like yourself, are ready to elevate their business and brand to the next level though smart design and strategy.

Over the past 20+ years I’ve worked on a vast array of projects with both large corporations and first-time entrepreneurs. I’ve had a lot of conversations and translated many unclear ideas into clear and effective visual brand identities and creative solutions.

Creative Groove is a small, well-established Calgary-based branding & creative agency that takes the time to understand your needs, while respecting your budget and timelines. Experience, creativity and strategic thinking are our most valuable assets.

Let’s take your business farther than you ever imagined.

How Our Process Works

By taking a strategic approach and working closely with you, we ensure our creative solutions meet your business goals and vision.

Step 1

Plan + Discover 

Clarity is key. We begin with a call to discover where your business is at, and clarify your objectives and long-term vision. Then we’ll outline a plan to get you where you want to go.

Step 2

 Define + Create 

The phase when the magic happens! You sit back while we get to work designing the look and feel for your vision. Concepts will be presented to you, then refined until you are satisfied.

Step 3

Deliver + Engage

This is what you’ve been waiting for. Your brand identity is delivered and your website is launched. We’ll get on a call to hand over your files and teach you some tips & tricks, so you can seamlessly put your new brand to work.

Bring Your Business + Brand to Life

Don’t miss another opportunity

Whether you’ve been in business for a year or decades, your brand needs to be relevant to connect with your audience.
